Competing in Alaska

Hello, I am currently a junior in High School in my second year of Vex EDR Robotics in Kansas, but my family is moving to Alaska over the summer. I am interested in continuing Robotics in Alaska, and I intend on forming my own team to accomplish this. My problem is that there are no competitions this year in Alaska, and that makes me think there will be no competitions next year unless I organize one. I would like information on how I could do this, and any advice on how to have people show up to this tournament.

Contact the Alaska regional support manager.

I will try to call the support person and update whether or not that completely answers my question, thank you.

Alaska is geographically difficult for robotics competitions. I know the FTC partner there and it’s taken many years to build the program. Suggest also looking into FTC as well as VRC.
